About Sara

I purchased the home based on its great location! It is my primary residence but I travel frequently for my work as an executive coach and leadership consultant. Our work takes us around the globe, but we always return to this sweet home and Boulder!

Our house is walking distance to what we love: hiking, cycling, yoga classes, live music, excellent restaurants, coffee shops, events at CU & great people watching on Pearl Street Mall!

Our grandchildren also love the house, with its large yard and easy access to Pearl Street Mall, play grounds, ice cream shops, North Boulder Pool, hiking and biking.

Sara purchased this house in 1998

Why Sara chose Boulder

Boulder is amazing! If you love the great outdoors, there is so much going on here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Boulder for the graduation of our son. It snowed during the evening, but we woke up to blue skys. This is a perfect setup for an alternative to staying in a hotel We would much rather do this than a cramped hotel room.

We wish we had found this four years ago. I can't think of anything that your home lacks, Thank you , thank you, thank you.

We loved the location of this clean and very comfortable home. Mountain view out the front windows and a roomy deck in a private and spacious backyard. Great for BBQ and eating outside. Close to the college, Pearl Street and bike trails. We really enjoyed or time in Boulder.

Perfect place to stay in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sara's house for a week at the beginning of June. It was perfect. The location was exactly what I was looking for, just 7 blocks from Pearl Street Mall, with a Whole Foods (or Ideal Foods as the sign says outside the market) right around the corner. Centrally located to everything we did.

The cottage was setup with everything we needed. Very clean and comfortable. We never spoke to Sara as the house had all of the information listed in the book.

We would definitely stay here again on our next Boulder trip.

Great house, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this house for our 10 day visit to Boulder. The house has everything you need and a big backyard. It is in a great location with shops just a few minutes walk away and close to Pearl st mall. Sara was very helpful with any questions I had. We stayed with 2 young kids and there was everything we needed for them too. Would recommend this house to anyone visiting Boulder.

Perfect vacation getaway

What a perfect vacation getaway for us and our dogs! The yard was great for the dogs and being able to walk to everything we needed was just a bonus. Really great location in such a beautiful city!

Perfect house and gorgeous yard!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this house and yard. It was wonderful to come home in

the evening after a day's hiking in Rocky Mt National Park and grill

and sit on the deck! The house was clean and neat! The kitchen is

upgraded and I love the new sink and faucet and granite counters!

The bed in master bedroom was so comfortable and the pillows were just right!

On the hot days and we had some that were 95-99F we used the Swamp

Cooler in the evenings and the house cooled quickly!

We were visiting our son who is a grad student at CU-Boulder. We

walked each day along the Boulder Creek Parkway and then stopped for

coffee at one of the many coffee shops and enjoyed their outdoor patio.

We enjoyed the Ideal Market 2 blocks away and lunch at Breadworks!

Dinner at Bramble and Hare was delicious..also took a Market to Table

local restaurant tour. The Boulder Farmer's Market is terrific and we

planned our meals after buying local produce and meats.

I can't wait to visit Boulder again and stay at my favorite house!

Small family for week in August

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this fantastic home - it is in a perfect location, nicely equiped, and has everything you could want for a week-long stay. My husband, young son and I stayed for a week in August. We loved the proximity to Ideal Market, Vics, Pearl Street and the North Boulder Park. We walked everywhere and rarely had to use a car. The layout is very nice and was just the right size for our small family. We will definitely opt to stay here again on our next trip to Boulder!
